George Monbiot Calls for Slaughter of Political Opponents

With Hurricane Isaac bearing down on the southern states the Republicans have had to delay the start of their national convention in Florida. Cue Guardian contributor and green totalitarian George Monbiot to wish for the worst on his political enemies:

They’ve sacked people for less…

      Not wanting to put a dampener on your post Guido, but Isaac at the moment is a tropical and not a hurricane.

        Until the next advisory, when it will probably be upgraded.

        Its only Cat 1, it isn’t going to do much damage (other than a lot of rain, which they actually need in the Mississippi region at the moment). It could have been a lot worse but the thermodynamic engine didn’t get organised for some reason.

        George is going to be disappointed – the core is going nowhere near Tampa and hasn’t been predicted to do so for at least a week.

        Louisiana all the way…

          No one hates and envies like the left.
          Monbiot is a stupid lesser spotted pygmy against the likes of Jimmy the Red Naughty.
          His “New Elizabethans” makes a travesty of history in its choices and its hatchet job on those he and the left hate.

      As with the swivel eyed lefty loons, swivel eyed loons tend to have their judgement clouded and often find their dogma being run over by their karma.

    Eh?! Now Guido, normally I’m with you rather than Monbiot, but how the hell have you derived “Monbiot Calls for Slaughter of Political Opponents” from an observation on whether the venue is going to leak and which imaginary sky-pixie might be responsible?

    C’mon Guido, you can do better than this!

        Me too. well OTT by Guido this time.


        • 37

          Sorry Guido – they have a very fair point. Monbiot is a twat in the first circle of twatishness, so he deserves to be attacked at every valid opportunity – “Valid”


          • Foaming mouth watch says:

            Maybe Monbiot was foaming at the mouth when he made the tweet?


          • jgm2 says:

            It looks likely that a hurricane will hit. And, almost certainly, people will be killed as a result. So Monbiot has most certainly not thought this one through.

            If Rush Limbaugh or Fox News or one of the other hate-figures of the left had, on the eve of Hurricane Katrina striking New Orleans, suggested that it would be a good thing because there were so many Democrats living there then there would have been an outcry in the aftermath. Yet this is, essentially, what Moonbat has just said.

            He’s relentless in his global warming idiocy and this is just another manifestation of his ignorance.


          • To Be Fair says:

            To be fair once fanaticism grips the brain theres very little an individual can do to stop himself calling for the deaths of those who disagree .

      Jimmy says:

      He’s just pointed out that God hates righties. He’s not expressing a view one way or another as to whether God is right to feel this way. Although obviously He is.


      • 62

        Jimmy has made a very fair point – just why do some people worship such a factional, homicidal, vicious, jealous and punitive sky fairy is beyond me – except perhaps because it excuses their own base feelings towards the others who inhabit this world.

        Elegant bullshit argument from the left once again, young James.

          Jimmy says:

          Remember Jesus wants us to share our toys.


          • jgm2 says:

            When Jesus gives me the power to walk on water and turn water into wine and calm storms and raise the dead and all that good shit then he can share my toys. Until then he can fuck off.

            Wants me to share all my stuff with the ‘poor’ people but keeps all the good shit for himself.

            Maybe he was a commie after all.

    You are an utter, complete, and contemptible pratt, – on, or below the same elevated platform as your colleague, Twatpolly.

    You may now go and drown yourself in a deluge somewhere – surely that’s fair – especially as you will be remembered as a maryter to your cause.

    Totally Childish comment by Guido.

    Has he nothing better to do than waste our time?

    IF he could read, he would see the tweet starts with IF.

    Nobody EVER in the history of the world has ever been sacked for this type of comment.

      Fuck off back to CIF and take the rest of the bedwetters that don’t like the item with you. Perfectly sensible response by Fawkes to a typically snide moonbat dig at the people who might dare to question the lefts’ grand plan for global wealth redistribution, aka climate change.
      All politicians in the states have to profess to be god botherers, so he can’t lay that solely on the Republicans.

    This sort of storm has been going on for ages – climate change would be if there was no hurricane season.

    Why is Milimong calling for parliament to scrutinise the Virgin trains rejected bid?
    Milibore – In case you hadn’t noticed, you are not in power anymore.

    When does the opposition get to examine the awarding of a government contract? Did IDS get a look at the 3g bids? Did Dave get to scrutinise the G4S contract?

    Note to Labour {and BBc who also seem to have forgotten.}


    We have a coalition who are perfectly capable of F*cking up the nation without any help from you.

    Monbiot. What a fucking idiot. Thinks that hurricanes are a manifestation of ‘global warming’.

    It is so thoroughly dispiriting to find such imbeciles shaping bedwetter opinion.


    • 71

      jgm2 – you know full well that Grimm’s fairy tales, the Sunday Sport and wet dreams can shape bedwetter opinion, so this is no shock whatsoever.

      If they caught themselves actually evaluating the evidence dispassionately, they would have to make up outrageous conclusions, just to be consistent.

    A Passing Cynic says:

    Still the silly season is it, Guido?

    If you can point out to me where in that tweet Monbiot is calling for his political opponents to be slaughetered, I’ll be impressed. Because, er, he isn’t.

    Greedo Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf Fawkes says:

    This forum has officially jumped the shark. No news, but a trumped up story about a dead mouse, a think tank chief exec speaking at Tory Conference and a man talking about a building being flooded.

    No wonder they have to create multiple sub forums to keep the advertisers happy.

    Look, it’s perfectly all-right for committed socialists and activists to slag orff the right, its natural and is the done thing.

    But remember, the Socialist God of Nirvana will condemn anyone of the right or centreright who has the brass necked effrontery to criticise the left let alone not abase themselves in front of activist heroes.

    Bah humbug, how can you take these people seriously when they still think money grows on trees………..


    • 56 says:

      Not any kind of trees though. They have to be special magic ones. Socialists are not so stupid.

      If the statement hoping the Rep. conference was flooded (which could easily lead to many lives being lost) is a non-story why was the perfectly reasonable statement that Romney didn’t know whether the Olympics was going to be ready such a big story?

    It’s not a hurricane (yet) as of 0500AM CDT. Still ‘only’ a tropical storm.

      Weather Geek says:

      Latest report from the research aircraft says:

      This will translate to a 65KT or 70KT hurricane at the next advisory.

      The difference is marginal, though. Katrina it aint. Though no doubt some people will get into trouble, either in floods or poisoning themselves with their generator when the power goes off (a major cause of death after hurricanes).

      Of course, “Global Warming” has absolutely nothing to do with the event, which is where Moonbat is being provocative. There has actually been a slight lack of hurricanes hitting the US in the last few years, if anything.


      • 76
        Anonymous says:

        Now advisory 30. Still not a hurricane.

        More than a slight lack of hurricanes hitting the USA – a record length of time, I believe.

        And of course AGW causes hurricanes – there were none before 20 years ago, nor any typhoons, tornados, etc. The great storm of 1703 never happened – that’s just a myth. The weather was always completely constant, it never varied, there was no Medieval Warm Period, or Roman Warm period, or holocene optimum. It’s obvious that a tiny increase (or not) in the total greenhouse gasses will cause runaway global warming.

    He just wants the event flooded and cancelled and the Republican nutters to piss off.

    There is no doubt that Monbiot is a hate-filled bigot.

    I’ll bet he doesn’t think he is though, due to the usual hubris of the type.
